HC Deb 09 July 1964 vol 698 c123W
10. Sir K. Thompson

asked the Secretary of State for the Home Department if he will issue guidance to returning officers to consult local police authorities concerning special traffic control police to be on duty at polling stations at the forthcoming General Election.

Mr. Woodhouse

Chief constables arrange with returning officers for police to attend at polling stations for the purpose of maintaining order. It may be assumed that at the same time they bear in mind the question of traffic control. I have no evidence of a need for the issue of any special guidance on traffic control arrangements.
